America's Best Idea – the national parks – gets even better with several fee-free days at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees.*
Your Annual Pass covers Entrance Fees or Standard Amenity Fees at sites managed by USDA FS, NPS, USFWS, BLM and Reclamation. Valid for one full year from first use in a Park. This Pass admits one private vehicle, the passholder and accompanying passengers. This can be purchased online and at most entrance stations. The Pass will not reduce or cover any use fees, such as camping, swimming, parking, etc.
Please defer ALL park pass questions, including Senior and Access Passes, to the USGS. They issue the passes therefore questions should be sent to them. You can find them here:
For questions about the pass, contact 1-888-ASK-USGS and press 3. (888-275-8747, option 3)
